Just what is life? What do we really know about God? What do we really know about the universe? Is there intelligent life out there? Are we likely to encounter aliens in our lifetime? Is there more than one universe? Will parallel universes soon be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt?
These are just some of the questions that two friend have been asking since we were in grammar school together over 70 years ago. We have continued to speculate with each other about life, the universe, and the great unknowns that cause mankind to be such a special species here on earth. We have been living in different states, Mississippi and Florida, since high school graduation. One of us became an aerospace engineer and later a Vice President at Lockheed Martin Aerospace Company. The other became a trial attorney and went into private law practice.
But we still meet, write, email and discuss our evolving thoughts and ideas. We recently decided to meet in Homosassa Springs, Florida for a few days to chat about our ideas and see just what we really think about the answers to all the great questions of life and the universe. And although we did not discuss it outright, it was obvious that we may have been motivated to have this meeting because of increased interests in seeking answers to the questions: do we have souls and if so, is there an afterlife.
A series of modern day scientists and physicists from Einstein to Hubble to Heisenberg to Kaku to Hawking have postulated theories in an attempt to answer our most complex questions. Their once unconceivable theories are rapidly becoming acceptable and practical as billions of dollars are now being spent to test and prove the validity of their theories.
We collected their findings and theories and drew our own conclusions about Life and the Universe and are publishing them in this book. We tackle some of the biggest questions of mankind with the confidence that we can arrive at the truth and convey that truth in comprehensible narrative. We hope you enjoy our efforts and even if you cannot agree with all of our conclusions we hope this audiobook will stimulate you to continue to seek the truth about everything that is important to you.
Many of us can relate to two lifelong friends pondering through the years whether there is a God. The conclusion is that there is no definitive answer. It seems likely we will discover life on other planets. Does that mean there is a God? God or no God, life is truly a marvelous miracle. This book reminds you of that beautiful fact. Well-done.
Since Walter Parks is one of my favorite authors, I had to have the ebook as well as the Audible book. Makes commuting go by so fast and puts me in a good mood.
